May 2018 will see the return of the ever-popular annual Folk Festival. A long weekend of music, song and dance is in store, featuring some of the best folk music from Scilly and the South West. The Festival will take place from Thursday 24th May – Tuesday 29th May.
Highlights this year include acclaimed four-piece band Kelly's Heroes from the East Midlands promising a set embracing fast and furious Celtic songs, original material and gentle ballads. The band has played extensively across the UK including the Glasgow Mayfest and has an impressive back catalogue of twelve albums. Kelly's Heroes will play the Town Hall on Friday 25th at 8pm with support.
A series of events on the off Islands and the ever-popular barn dance on the 26th May continue through the weekend and the festival culminates on Monday 28th May with stunning young duo Harbottle and Jonas who hail from Totnes and will be playing new material from their most recent CD ‘Anna is a Dancer’. This will also be at the Town Hall.
